Srinagar, Oct 16: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday hailed celebration of Navratri Pujas held at historic Sharda temple in Teethwal area of Kupwara district first time since 1947.
In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Shah said that it is a matter of profound spiritual significance that for the first time since 1947, the Navratri pujas have been held in the historic Sharda Temple in Kashmir this year.
He said that earlier this year the Chaitra Navratri Puja was observed and now the mantras of the Shardiya Navratri puja resound in the shrine.
“I was fortunate to reopen the temple on 23rd March 2023 after restoration. This not only signifies the return of peace in the valley but also marks the rekindling of our nation’s spiritual and cultural flame under the leadership of PM Modi,” he said.
Notably, Navratri puja was held yesterday at Sharda Temple in Teethwal after a gap of 75 years. kns
